    Ira Winderman: If you insist, possible Heat deals that could make sense at Thursday’s NBA trading deadline

    Antetokounmpo notches triple-double, Bucks outlast Heat 123-115

    The Miami Heat wrapped up a disappointing road trip with a 123-115 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night in a game in which Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied a triple-double with 35 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists.

Yes, the shorthanded Heat, who were without Kyle Lowry and Victor Oladipo, deserve credit for hanging tough and not giving up against the No. 2 seed in the East, but when the margin of error is razor-thin in these clutch situations, the team is not good enough to consistently win these games. Jimmy Butler had a monster third quarter performance and finished with 32 points for the night but unfortunately had little impact in the game by the time he re-entered in the fourth quarter.
